A local distributor of Norwegian salmon has come up with the bizarre (yet brilliant) idea of selling fillets of the raw meat through vending machines, delivering omega-3 fatty acids to the masses in the Singapore HDB heartlands.

Wisteria Mall, the new shopping center along Yishun Ring Road, is now home to the world’s first “Norwegian Salmon ATM” — though the term “automatic teller machine” refers to devices that perform financial transactions. The only transactions involved here are raw 200g premium salmon fillets that go for S$5.90 each, which can only be paid for with debit and credit cards. They’re all frozen of course, and the vending machine operators Norwegian Salmon Pte Ltd promise no additives or flavoring added to the fillets.

The vending machine had its grand launch last Saturday afternoon and can be located at the Wisteria Mall basement near the Kopitiam food hall. According to one netizen, however, the machine can no longer be found in the mall. We’ve contacted Norwegian Salmon Pte Ltd for more details.

In the meantime, you can look forward to 14 more of the frozen salmon vending machines that will apparently be located in neighborhoods such as Jurong (East and West), Bukit Batok, Ang Mo Kio, Woodlands, Sembawang, Clementi, and more by the end of this month.
